Holiday Sketches Series 4: Pompeii & Hadrian’s Villa.

The main theatre at Pompeii.
You can see how hot it was. My wife (the lady in blue) momentarily sat in front of me before retreating to the shade, so she was quickly captured on the page. The sun bleached the stone, making the need to colour it redundant. Notice how intense the green of the trees are.

Pompeii images. Multiple layers of images seemed the right thing to do in this town, covered, then uncovered, countless lives walking down the streets. The first drawings (with the fish) was a round off the squiggle game. Make a squiggle, the other person makes it into an image. We were talking about garum, the fermented fish gut sauce that the Romans loved so much.

A small part of Hadrian’s Villa, Tivoli. The size of these buildings is truly imperial.

My eldest son’s version of the main theatre at Pompeii. A great drawing with added theatre masks which makes sense.
